CPU upgrade for Asus A6F from T2600 to T7200
CPU upgrade for Asus A6F from T2600 (x86) to T7200 (x64)

-bios link: 
Page here (direct download here) AMI BIOS

-whats happens: 
ASUS A6F (12yo laptop) currently running 32bit Intel Core Duo T2600. I want to upgrade to 64bit Intel Core 2 Duo T7200. Don't know if BIOS supports it (the chipset ICH7 does as datasheet confirms). 
Both are: SocketM/mPGA478MT, bus 667 MHz, 0.065 micron,

-CPU spec code:
Current: T2600 (Yonah) TBW 31 Watt
Upgrade: T7200 (Merom) TBW 34 Watt

Is it possible?

PS. I don't have new CPU yet, I need to order it. And there are mixed messages according to this solution. Some says it works, some says it's not working (same BIOS).

You need to update BIOS to version A6FAS.222 for T7200.
Thanx! BIOS updated smoothly. A lot of new options comparing to previous one. CPU on the way.

//edit: CPU arrived, installed it and working fine. Thx for help. Case closed. Smile
